This morning started off with a bang, literally, when my phone hit the floor.
I had woken up before my alarm, so I reached up to the headboard to bring it closer in anticipation of hitting the snooze button and instead of grabbing it, I knocked it back. It fell through the gap between the headboard and the wall and I naturally grumbled out a profanity. Shit. What an oh so perfect way to start my day. So I climbed out of bed, pulled out the mattress, pulled the box spring back and reached down. My skinny arms can usually reach into the tightest of spaces (you should have seen me squeeze my arm into a gap in the passenger side window when I accidentally locked my keys in the car...it was amazing), but this time, the angle wasn't quite right. So I dropped down, grabbed a hanger, and was able to slide it towards me as Gerald Albright's version of "Why Georgia" was nearly coming to an end. On one hand, I was frustrated at the situation and a little pissed because I had to get up at that time, but on the other, it was a fairly humorous way to start the morning. I ended up laughing about it and drinking my coffee a little earlier than usual. C'est la vie.
Besides that minor incident, I've seen my share of ups and downs this week. That said, I am more than ready for my Palm Springs vacation. In anticipation of my trip, I splurged and bought myself a little bikini. Because I needed another swimsuit. But seriously, I'm stoked that it fit and also that it didn't look ridiculous on me because I can't always pull off the ruffle look. I suppose that's what happens when you have more of an athletic build.

Anyway, I've got a number of swimsuits waiting to be worn again, most of which haven't seen the light of day since I went to Jamaica. I know my tan has significantly faded, but I think I still have enough of a base to keep from getting too crispy when I'm hanging out by the pool and sipping on adult beverages. I'm also looking forward to donning my monokini for the first time. I've been waiting for a super special occasion...for the past 5 years. So on top of overpacking in the swimwear department, I'll likely overpack in every other area. Because I can.
p.s. is it Friday yet?
